Over the course of the last month, I decided to dig into the health of infants and young children in hopes of preparing myself for the day I have a little one of my own. The last thing I want for my child is to be exposed to the health conditions I experienced throughout my life.
My parents did a wonderful job of taking care of me to the best of their abilities but what they couldn’t have foreseen was that food would play a vital role in destroying my health from the inside out.
Bread, sugar, gluten and vegetable oil, these things played a massive role in how my health plummeted in my late teens and early 20’s.
